Re: Tao -Latest Commission WIP to Finish x A&W

Blayne, thanks for the comments on the different textures between the leather, the metal and the horse. This really was a fun painting for me to do.

Jay, I'm really glad you liked the WIP. I really wanted to limit my color choices and see how well I could pull it off.

Chris, thanks so much! The background was such a conundrum for me. I wanted to keep it as dramatic as possible but didn't want to leave it on just the black paper. And I also didn't want to ruin it by getting all "artsy fartsy" with tons of colors back there. Simple was best.

Nick, you are so sweet! Doing the bridle was an interesting exercise in trying to keep it simple, but yet catching that soft shine that leather can give. I'm so happy you liked the WIP.

Cat
